As the autumn leaves are lost to flurries of winter snow, melted all 
too soon by the warmth of spring, life in our Alma Mater also evolves 
into fond memories of a year's enriching experiences. Through these we 
gain insights to strengthen the social, mental, and spiritual aspects of our 
lives. 

Since school pride is such a vital asset to the success of any institution 
of learning, we have come to place special emphasis on its meaning in all 
phases of campus life. With this temper of vigor incorporated into the at- 
titude of every student and teacher, we feel that we shall retain the enviable 
reputation we have achieved through past accomplishments. 

With this goal in mind, we wish to recreate the spirit of enthusiasm 
which has marked the student body of Rocky Mount Senior High School 
this year, and to relive each great moment of triumph. 

As we perceive the metamorphosis of Mother Nature through her sea- 
sons, we must trace our progress with hers. We must identify the tradi- 
tions we have maintained, along with the new ideas which have widened 
the scope of our entire school program.

A spirit of enthusiasm illustrates one of 
the fundamental impulses of school life; the 
state of oneness which is the combined effort 
of many to win their goals. Through partici- 
pating in organizations and activities, and by 
enriching his understanding of human know- 
ledge in the classroom, the individual not 
only keeps his distinctiveness, but also gives 
a portion of himself to the success of his 
school.

Rocky Mount Senior High lias a proud 
heritage. The past has witnessed excellence 
in various fields of endeavor, attributed 
mainly to the interest with which its admin- 
istration, community, faculty, and students 
have supported its projects. The school has 
produced competent citizens, prepared to 
face a world of challenge. The future beckons 
brightly.

DEDICATION 




Mrs. Ada Spencer Hobbs

A joy in helping young people is the most endearing quality of "Mama" 
Hobbs, as she is known to all her students. As well as being head ol Rocky Mount 
Senior High's excellent Dramatics Department and director of two exceptional plays 
each year, Mrs. Hobbs teaches junior English and extends the magic of the theater 
to non-Edsonians in her capacity as advisor to the Dramatics Club. 

Like the prospective actors she trains, Mrs. Hobbs plays varied roles. The stu- 
dents know her as a friendly, energetic, entertaining teacher, and a conscientious, 
capable director. Her co-workers are aware of her enthusiasm, line sense of humor, 
and deep-seated concern for her work. The community recognizes her for her interest 
and aid in civic endeavors. Her family see her as a devoted mother and proud 
grandmother. 

For her selfless devotion to Senior High and its students, we gratefully dedicate 
this 1963 HI -NGC-AR to Mrs. Ada Spencer Hobbs— herself an inspiration.

MR. D. S. JOHNSON 
Superintendent 

Directing the complicated activities of a 
growing school system is a responsibility 
that calls lor patience, tact, efficiency, and 
complete dedication. Rocky Mount is for- 
tunate to have a man at the head of its 
educational structure who possesses these 
needed characteristics. An expanded cur- 
riculum emphasizing broadened cultural 
interests and physical fitness, as well as the 
erection of modern educational plants 
tc'lify to the success of Mr. Johnson's years 
of service. 



ADMINISTRATION 



MR. C. M. EDSON 

Principal 

Mr. Edson is unquestionably one of the 
most versatile principals in the slate ol 
North Carolina. I lis keen sense of humor, 
his sincere devotion to duty, his abiding 
interest in young people compliment his 
outstanding personality. He conscientiouslv 
applies himsell to (he c out inning develop- 
ment of our school in a manner that en- 
dears him to students, co-workers, and the 
community at large. He represents the 
ideal educator.

all who know her. She aids students 
in choosing the right path, not only 
through her work as Guidance Coun- 
selor, but also through excellent 
English instruction. 



As Guidance Counselor, Mr Fountain 
must help the young people of our 
school with various types of problems; 
however, he makes all students feel 
that he is not only their advisor, but 
their friend as we'll.

Without Mrs. Carr, our problems 
would soon overtake us. Nol only 
does she perform efficiently as Set 
retary, but she treats each student 
with special attention. Her hours are 
long and her tasks numerous, but she 
is ever ready to assist all who need 
her advice.

maintenance of buildings and grounds, proper operation of cafe-

The addition of Russian to the curriculum 
proves that our Language Department is certainly 
growing. Other courses offered include first, sec-

emphasis is on the spoken language and the

enable each student to develop his abilities at 
his own rate.

The English Department is the most impor- 
tant part of our academic curriculum. Every other 
department would crumble were it not for the 
excellent work performed by the English teach- 
ers. In all phases of our lives there is a demand 
lor correct and fluent expression of ideas and 
feelings. Each student personally accepts this chal- 
lenge and through conscientious work and the 
guidance of superb instructors the challenge is 
met and overcome. 

Courses in English are designed to benefit all 
students. At each grade level there are average 
classes for students with normal ability, special 
courses for those with modified ability.- and ad- 
vanced courses in grammar and composition for 
those with superior potential. Grammar and 
vocabulary are constantly emphasized, but stu- 
dents are exposed to all types of prose and poetry, 
in the hope that they will develop an appreciation 
of literature.

DEVELOPING OUR MINDS TO 
THINK LOGICALLY... 




Courses in mathematics up-to and including 
one semester's study of analytic geometry and 
introductory calculus are available to students 
at Rocky Mount Senior High School. College 
algebra and trigonometry courses are taught with 
the aim in mind that college credit for these 
courses will be rewarded. 

Students are placed in mathematics classes ac- 
cording to their mathematical ability, permitting 
a small percentage of students to complete the 
requirements for plane and solid geometry in one 
year, as well as permitting less-capable students 
to continue their study of fundamental operations 
in a purely practical sense.

DISCOVERING NATURE'S WONDERS 




It is the aim ol the Science Department to 
stimulate students to appreciate the world about 
them by heightening their scientific interests and 
instilling in them an appreciation lor the scientific 
method. Standard courses including biology and 
chemistry prepare students for a course either in 
physics or advanced biology. These science courses 
serve a two-fold purpose by providing the non- 
college pupils with a rewarding and beneficial 
experience and preparing the college-bound stu- 
dents for further scientific study. 

Obvious testimony to the efficiency of our 
science faculty lies in the fact that Mrs. Ora 
VanBuskirk was the recipient of the runner-up 
award for the most outstanding science teacher in 
North Carolina. 



KEEPING OUR BODIES 
ALERT... 

The Physical Education Department attempts 
to strengthen students physically and mentally, 
to help them develop good sportsmanship and to 
instill within them qualities of leadership and 
cooperation. Vigorous exercises help keep the stu- 
dents physically fit while tough, competitive sports 
increase their ability to think accurately and 
quickly. 

Physical Education is an elective for sopho- 
mores and juniors and this year was a required 
course for all seniors.

munity. 

Learning beautiful compositions and relaxing 
through singing are only two of the valuable 
experiences enjoyed by those participating in the 
choir. They reveal their line talents by present- 
ing various musical programs. 

Through the presentation of two major pro- 
ductions a year, members of the Dramatics De- 
partment put into practice the various aspects 
of theatrical art learned in the classroom. Em- 
phasis is also placed on general voice improve- 
ment.

BORROWING FROM THE PAST 
TO UNDERSTAND THE FUTURE 




Every student in Senior High enjoys the 
facilities of the Social Studies Department 
at one time or another. The courses offered 
include American and world history, eco- 
nomics, sociology, government, and psych- 
ology. The department is proud of its 
participation in the In-School Television 
Network and receives two programs daily, 
one in American history and one in world 
history. Through this variety of courses, 
students learn of the events past and pres- 
ent, which enables them to face the future 
with determination and an open mind. 



American history students receive daily broadcasts by Miss 
Iola Parker, a former Senior High teacher, from the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. These interesting 
and varied programs help students toward a better under- 
standing of their heritage. 




PREPARING OURSELVES FOR 

A USEFUL ADULTHOOD..

The changing pattern of home and 
family living points to new emphasis 
in our Home Economics Department. 
It is the aim of this department to 
help young people to create and ap- 
preciate beauty, to work together dem- 
ocratically, to establish values, to make 
intelligent choices, to manage re- 
sources, and to prepare for future 
responsibilities. 

Provisions are made for creative 
experiences and skills in three courses 
offered in the shop building. General 
shop, with emphasis in wood work- 
ing, is an elective for all boys. Me- 
chanical drawing is offered to boys in 
the eleventh and twelfth grades. Vo- 
cational machine shop is offered to all 
boys who plan to go into the metal 
working field.

ACQUIRING SKILLS FOR

Business education offers many rewards for non-college students as 
well as college-bound students. Courses in typewriting, shorthand, book- 
keeping, and office machines train interested students who do not plan to 
continue their education after high school. 

Distributive Education trains students for careers in different busi- 
nesses. This plan combines part-time work experience with in-school in- 
struction to enable the student, upon graduation, to be a qualified em- 
ployee and a useful citizen.

The Student Organization exists for sev- 
eral reasons. Its specific purposes are stated 
in its constitution, but one goal outranks all 
others: To provide students an opportunity 
to participate in the functioning of democ- 
racy, and thereby helping build strong citi- 
zens. Striving for this, the Student Organiza- 
tion reaches out to promote student interest 
in school activities, to stress scholarship, char- 
acter, and leadership, and to provide con- 
tinuing services to the school. 

Wheels started rolling last summer. Com- 
mittee chairmen were appointed and prepara- 
tion for the opening of school began. Com- 
mittee plans started to materialize, orienta- 
tion of the Sophomores and transfer students 
began, student support of the future state 
champion football team was encouraged, and 
numerous other projects shaped up. The 
Student Organization was running smoothly, 
and continued to do so throughout the year. 



The officers are Jan McCrary, Secretary; Greg Low, President; E( 
Arlington, Treasurer; and David Williams, Vice President. 



Representatives of the Student Organization are Nell Fleming, Beth Whitley, Barbara Nelson, Steve Carson, Peggy Brantley, Jerry Lundy, 
Cassandra Martin, Sharon Land, Brenda Weaver, Brenda Fowler, Bruce Lea, Susan Strandbcrg, Donna Whitley, Chris Marks, Stewart

Several new activities were initiated this 
year and many old programs were strength- 
ened. A standing School Spirit Committee 
was established to help promote and to cor- 
relate school spirit activities of all school 
groups. School dances were boosted by the 
presence of bands made possible by a gener- 
ous P.T.S.A. The magazine campaign en- 
joyed more success than ever, and the par- 
ticipation and efficiency of the representatives 
were outstanding. Homeroom and class or- 
ganizations also functioned smoothly, and 
contributed much to the effectiveness of the 
Student Organization. 

The tremendous aid of the faculty cannot 
be ignored. Their help, interest, and sup- 
port, and the guidance provided by all ad- 
visors actually made possible the gains and 
dreams that the Student Organization 
realized this year.

This year THE BLACKBIRD was its former 
self in name only. For the first time the offset 
method of printing was used, and because of this 
the paper was neater and pictures were clearer. 
Thirteen issues were published during the year 
with eight pages in each issue with the exception 
of the twelve-page color Christmas issue. 

Following the traditional kickoff assembly, the 
1962-63 Staff sold a record 750 subscriptions. 
Total circulation was nearly 1000. The Miss Print 
campaign was successfully conducted with four- 
teen girls participating. Lindy Brice was crowned 
Miss Print for 1962 in an assembly with "Winter 
Wonderland" as the theme. 

Participating in the School Press Project of 
the National Tuberculosis Association is an 
annual affair for the Staff. Betty Armstrong cap- 
tured first place honors; David Lamm, second; 
and Jeff Kincheloe, third. 

Immediately before the Christmas holidays, 
THE BLACKBIRD Staff sponsored the election 
of girls for the Junior-Senior Beauty Court. Pic- 



tures and statistics of these girls were sent to a 
celebrity to be judged. The winner was crowned 
queen at the Junior-Senior Dance by the Editor 
of THE BLACKBIRD. 

In March several members of the Staff jour- 
neyed to New York for the annual convention of 
Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The Staff 
carried with them high hopes of winning a 
medalist for the first time. 

Under the supervision of advisor Mrs. Mar- 
garet Williams, the Staff worked diligently to 
publish the best BLACKBIRD possible. Officers 
were Dwight Thomas, Editor; Nancy Helms, Ad- 
vertising Manager; Dell Harris, Business Man- 
ager; and Mike Floyd, Circulation Manager. News 
editors were Marilyn Spencer and Jimmy Wil- 
liams, editorial editor was Greg Low, feature 
editor was Carlton Edwards, and sports editor 
was David Lamm. 

A junior staff of fourteen published THE 
BABY BIRD several times during the year.

CHEERLEADERS LEAD 

SCHOOL SPIRIT CAMPAIGN 

A huge, vivacious bunch of energy . . . that 
is the cheerleaders of Rocky Mount Senior High 
School. Here and there, always promoting school 
spirit for all athletic events, they are our most 
ardent boosters. 

This year for the first time, the cheerleaders 
met as a club once each week to practice new 
cheers and become better organized. With the 
help of Mrs. Evelyn Walston, they seemed to 
improve with each performance. 

Whether at a pep rally with a blazing bonfire, 
or entertaining guest cheerleaders at a meal be- 
fore the game, these girls are responsible for 
keeping interest high. 

This year was a particularly busy one for this 
group, for they followed the football and basket- 
ball teams through two tournament seasons, 
thereby adding enthusiasm and high spirits to 
vital games. Their cries of "Let's go . . . let's go 
. . . let's really go" echoed from one end of North 
Carolina to another.

By Bob Williams, Telegram Sports Editor 

The 1962 football season will go down in the 
annals of Rocky Mount Senior High School 
athletics as That Magnificent Year. 

It was an historic season when championship 
dreams came true, when outstanding Rocky 
Mount Senior High heroes rode the prestige of 
an undefeated season to lofty levels of acclaim 
that included state, sectional, and national honors. 

It was a dramatic season during which the city 
of Rocky Mount rose up in a stirring display of 
mass support for a mighty football team that 
engulfed its fans in a feverish surge of excite- 
ment. 

It was the season when RMHS quarterback 
Danny Talbott, one of those gifted stars who 
comes along only rarely to blaze a glittering path 
across the athletic heavens, came to be accepted 
as the most outstanding football player in the 
state and the greatest all-around athlete in his 
school's history. 

It was, indeed, That Magnificent Year. 

These heroics and the wonderful things that 
came with them were accomplished by an out- 
standing Blackbird football team that marched 
to the first state championship in Rocky Mount 
Senior High history. And this team did it in a 
manner that established it as one of the school's 
greatest— undefeated for a record of eleven vic- 
tories and one tie. 

The Birds of Coach Chris Carpenter— who 
continued to prove himself one of North Caro- 
lina's leading high school coaches— were a bril- 
liant team throughout the season. But the most 
remarkable part of the year was the decisive march 
of the Blackbirds through the championship 
playoffs, leaving no doubts as to their rights to 
the football throne of North Carolina. 

After winning the Eastern 4-A Conference 
crown with a thrilling victory over Raleigh in the

STATE 4-A CHAMPIONSHIP 



THE CHAMPIONS 



final game of the regular season, RMSH headed 
into the playoffs, meeting Charlotte Myers Park 
in the semi-finals. Charlotte hopes were high, but 
Myers Park never had a chance as the Birds rolled 
to a highly impressive 21-6 victory. 

That put Rocky Mount in the state champion- 
ship against Winston-Salem Reynolds, an unde- 
feated team with a proud record of stout defensive 
play. The Reynolds defense, however, was no 
match for the power and magic of Rocky Mount's 
Talbott— led offense. Danny's superlative passing 
and running directed a fired-up attack that 
smashed Reynolds 20-6. 

Throughout the season, and particularly in 
the playoff drive, Talbott was superlative in lead- 
ing Rocky Mount's cast of stars. He collected 
every available honor— All-Conference, All-State, 
All-Southern and Ail-American to become the 
most widely acclaimed football player in RMHS 
history. 

This, however, was no one-man team; it took 
a lot of talent to accomplish the championship 
dream. Sensational halfback Wrennie Pitt, ends 
Dennis Newell and Billy Warren, and mighty 
tackle John Alexander joined Talbott in the All- 
Conference ranks. 

The list of heroes ran almost through the 
entire team roster. Halfbacks Digit Laughridge. 
Craig Quick, and Darrell Johnson and fullbacks 
Wayne Daughtridge and Robert Bridgers were 
vital to the Blackbird attack. Without a stellar 
line that fought with tremendous desire. Rocky 
Mount's cause would have been lost. The Birds 
had such linemen in guards Steve Wright, Butch 
Clayton, David Parker, and Tommy Cheshire, 
center Wayne Bullock, tackles Bobby Jones, Allen 
Wester, and Julian Fenner, and ends Bob Sides, 
Tom Parrish, and Brent Milgrom. 

These were the men of Rocky Mount Senior 
High who made it possible. That Magnificent 
Year.

'62 GRIDDERS COMPLETE FINEST SEASON IN R.M.S.H. HISTORY 



Rocky Mount Senior High's 1.962 loot hall 
team reached heights of glory no loot hall team 
at R.M.H.S. has ever attained, as it strong-armed 
its way to the State 4-A football Championship. 

The '62 Birds of Coach Chris Carpenter com- 
piled a 9-0- 1 regular season record to take top 
honors in the Eastern 4-A Conference, the only 
blot to a perfect record coming in a 6-6 tie with 
rival Fayetteville. The conference title race was 
the closest in many years, and wasn't decided until 
the Blackbirds took a hard-fought 13-7 win over 
defending State Champion Broughton of Raleigh 
in the last regular season game for both teams. 

The high-flying Blackbirds then went into 
playoff action, and gained a berth in the 4-A finals 
by trouncing Myers Park of Charlotte, 21-7. 

On November 23, at Bowman-Gray Stadium 
in Winston-Salem, the Blackbirds were not to be 
denied as they crushed Winston-Salem Reynolds 
by the score of 20-6, and brought to R.M.H.S. its 
first undefeated football season and its first State 
4-A Football Championship 

Post season honors were poured on outstand- 
ing Blackbirds. Quarterback Danny Talbott was 
selected Ail-American, All-Southern, All-State, 
and All-Conference, and was selected as the Out- 
standing Back in the annual Shrine Bowl game. 
Halfback Wrennie Pitt was another All-State, All- 
Conference selection, and was also selected to play 
in the Shrine Bowl game. Ends Dennis Newell 
and Billy Warren and tackle John Alexander also 
received first team All-Conference honors. Second 
team All-Conference positions were won by Steve 
Wright, Craig Quick, Butch Clayton, Darrell 
Johnson, Marion Barnes, and Tom Parrish. 

Several other Blackbird players received an 
honorable mention in the All-State and All- 
Conference voting.

BAND FOLLOWS BIRDS TO VICTORY 



Beating brass drums, deep throated tubas, and 
blaring brasses combine to create a sound which 
is dear to every Blackbird's heart— the music of 
the Rocky Mount Senior High Band. 

This high-stepping unit represents Senior 
High, in all parades that take place in Rocky 
Mount and surrounding areas. This year they 



participated in the Shrine Ceremonial, the Azalea 
Festival, and the Harvest Festival, as well as mak- 
ing the football field come alive with half-time

The name Service Club is aptly applied to 
this group of hard-working juniors and seniors. 
The many projects performed by this group in- 
clude selling lightbulbs and candy, raising and 
lowering the flag at school and at all home football 
games, and giving the regular assembly devo- 
tional. The sponsorship of a needy family at 



Christmas and the annual Christmas assembly are 
projects that are always successful. In the spring 
of each year, the Service Club holds the annual 
Easter Sunrise Service. It is truly a beautiful tradi- 
tion. This organization is an asset to school and 
community; so wearing the Service Club ribbon 
is a mark of distinction and pride for the wearer.

this reason, membership in this organization is 
one of the most coveted honors a student may

Highlighting the year's activities are the im- 
pressive tapping ceremonies in the fall and spring. 



Among other worthwhile projects, the Society sells 
pencils, conducts a carwash in the spring, and 
compiles a scrapbook of its achievements. As rec- 
ognition for outstanding accomplishments, a Most 
Valuable Member Award is given to one Society 
member and a Wita A. Bond Memorial Scholar- 
ship is presented to a student who excels in mathe- 
matics. This group is indeed an asset to our school.

this maxim to operate in the making of important decisions is the 
aim of the Debate Club which is composed this year of nine 
seniors, two juniors, and three sophomores. 



During the year many important current issues are debated 
during dub pel iods. assembly programs, and with other schools 
at the Triangular Debates sponsored by the University of North 
Carolina. Senior High is indebted to Mr. Julius Abernathy, advisor, 
lor his interest in reactivating this important group.

BOOSTER CLUB PROMOTES SCHOOL SPIRIT 



The Booster Club was organized this current 
school year. Members are composed of junior and 
senior girls who are willing to sacrifice time and 
energy to carry out projects initiated by the club. 
The purpose of this group is to back or boost all 
school sponsored activities, and undertakings are 
carefully planned in order to allow each member 



an opportunity to serve as a leader as well as a 
follower. Under a point system, girls receive one 
point as a member of any committee and five 
points in any leadership capacity. Points are also 
awarded those who help in carrying out projects 
initiated by other school organizations. 



Mrs. Lundy presents a check from Sears to officers of the Booster 
Club, Laurie Collins, sergeant at arms; Karol Jean Sexton, secretary;

NEW CLUBS PROVIDE INSTRUCTION FOR BRIDGE ENTHUSIASTS 



In recent years there has been a growing in- 
terest among teenagers tor the game of bridge.

the organization of two new bridge clubs— 
TRUMPS and TRICKS and the BLACK 
BRIDGE Club. Although only a few of the club 
members had had any previous experience in 
bridge playing at the beginning of the year, every- 



one was enthusiastic. Under the leadership of 
capable advisors, including Miss Craighill, Mrs. 
Teague, Miss Lunsford, and Mr. Felton, these 
students had soon mastered the fundamentals and 
were building their skills. These bridge club 
members agree that bridge is an important social 
asset and intellectually stimulating, as well as a 
lot of fun.

1962 BLACKBIRDS TAKE 




A Tribute to the Blackbirds 

By BOB WILLIAMS, Sports Editor, Rocky Mount 
Evening Telegram 



Home <)1 The Double Champs! 

That's what they were proclaiming for Rocky Mount Senior 
High School in the 1962-63 school year when a remarkable Black- 
bird basketball team followed the RM1I.S football state champion- 
ship season with a magnificent slate title ilti\e ol its own. 

Senior High, which never had enjoyed the glory of state cham- 
pionship honors before this (.olden Year, made up tor lost time 
when a great basketball team swept through the state tournament 
to bring the school its second straight state title. 

Heading into the stale tournament at Greensboro, this Black- 
bird basketball squad carried a modest 15-8 record, and tourney 
experts barely gave them any mention when it came to talking 
about title contenders. The Birds didn't have enough height, the 
experts said, and lacked the scoring power needed in tournament 
play. 

This Blackbird team, however, had strengths the experts 
couldn't see: defense and desire, some sparkling talent and a great 
amount of team heart. And these were the things that sent them 
spiralling to the state championship. 

The Birds wrapped up (he big. shiny trophy with a thrilling 

JimtuN Clack dropped in the winning goal just before (he final 
buzzer sounded, Rocky Mount High had its greatest moment in 
the school's basketball history, and coach Bill Lundy Imally had 
the big prize alter 17 years of searching. 

people figured the Birds could do it. They had to light the odds 
to prove themselves the best in the stale.

SECOND 4-A CHAMPIONSHIP 



Rocky Mount was an underdog throughout the tournament. 
But twice the Blackbirds thundered to big victories, and in the 
championship name against Greensboro they showed the steel oi a 
champion when the) had to fight to win a dose one. 

The Blackbirds' starting five oi Damn Talbott, Tom Parrish, 
Jimmy Clack, Billy Warren and Robert Ricks saw most oi the 

of the championship credit. Reserves Jimmy Coals and Harold 
Earnhardt came in at vital moments to turn in staunch perform- 
ances, and every man on the bench did his pan in boosting the 
effort with support. 

pionship team and the- Birds had their share of that. Talbott 
turned in three games of brilliant all-around play, and was named 
the state tournament's Most Valuable Player for the second straight 
year. Parrish was magnificent in the title game, pouring in SO 
points, and joined Talbott on the All- I our namenl team. Clack and 
Warren, rugged rebounders in each game, ran strong in the all- 
tourney voting, and Ricks was a hustling defensive battler all the 
way. 

In Rocky Mount's opening tournament game the Blackbirds 
were, at best, rated even with Gastonia. and romped to a 49-30 
victory. They were a solid underdog against Burlington in the 
semi-finals, but again the Blackbirds rolled, this time to a 72-58 
triumph. 

That brought up the championship clash with Greensboro, 
and the experts figured Rocky Mount's drive was due to end 
abruptly. But it was Rocky Mount, not Greensboro, that domi- 
nated the action most of the way. The Birds led by 11 points at 
halftime, lost that margin and then won the championship 52-50 
in true storybook fashion, on Clack's last-second shot in overtime. 

To most people Rocky Mount's state championship march was 
a surprise, but the Blackbirds proved themselves the best in the 
state. Despite facing greater height, they outrebounded their three 
tournament opponents. They outshot their foes in each game, and 
showed the strongest defense of the tournament. 

Their effort was a great one. and because of it they sat on the 
throne in The Home Of The Double Champs.

BASEBALL 



1962 was another successful year for Blackbird 
baseball. The '62 team ended the year with a con- 
ference record of seven wins and four losses. After 
losing the opening game of the season to Wilson, 
the Blackbird nine came back strong and won the 
next three conference games. 

The Blackbirds suffered their second defeat of 
the season at the hands of the Wilmington Wild- 
cats. They again came back strong, however, and 
beat their next four opponents. The Blackbirds 
went into the last game of the season with a chance 
to tie for the conference championship, but their 
hopes were smashed as they lost a heartbreaking 
game to Goldsboro.

The '62 track team was very successful, 
as the charges of Coaches Chris Carpenter 
and Henry Trevathan made a strong show- 
ing in several meets. Highlights ol the 
season were a victory over Wilson and 
Goldsboro in a triangular meet, and a 
victory over Greenville in a dual meet at 
the Greenville track. The track team also 
made a strong showing in the conference 
meet. 




BLACK MASQUERS — GOAL OF EVERY DRAMA STUDENT 




Officers of the Black Masquers standing before the door of tin 
Green Room are Kenneth Rackley, vice-president; Anne Nelson 
secretary; Pat Forbes, president; and Dell Lamm, treasurer. 



Proceeds from their projects during the year 
go into equipment for the school stage. Members 
often participate at community functions, serving 
as ushers or stage crew. In addition to their other 
activities, the Black Masquers produce a play 
on their own. 



Since 1935 the Black Masquers, honorary dra- 
matics association, has promoted the spirit of the 
theater. Members are elected from the Edsonians 
on the basis of their interest and participation 
in dramatics. Under the guidance of Mrs. Ada 
Hobbs, these veterans of the stage study phases 
and personalities of the theater. 




Black Masquers relax back stage during a line rehearsal for a one 
act play. Members cooperate closely with the Edsonians in their 
productions, too, and often serve behind the curtain. 



First row: Anne Nelson, Anne Vanderslice, Pat Forbes, Mary Henrietta Gordon, and Valda Lancaster; second row: Charles Tharrington, 
Wayne Pierce, Douglas Knowles, Larry Ayscue, Ron Eads, Dell Lamm, Jimmy Deans, and Larry Murchison.

We of the 1963 Hi-Noc-Ar staff wish to thank our community, our fellow students, our 
faculty and administrators, and especially our able advisors, Miss Alma Murchison, Mrs. Nellie 
Rhea Winstead, and Mr. Price Coursey of Charlotte Engraving Company for their whole hearted 
cooperation during the past year. Without the understanding and assistance of these people, a 
publication such as this would have been virtually impossible. We feel that Jack Cummings, our 
student photographer, has here displayed some excellent examples of his work, so we are deeply 
indebted to him for his time and talents. 

The 1963 Hi-Noc-Ar, a monument to tears, frustration, threats, and coaxing is here for the 
casual reader to decide for himself the question which has bothered the staff all year— "Was it all 
worth it?" We unanimously agree to the positive answer to this question, and hope that all the 
readers, the students of Senior High, I eel the same.
